Dear Moustafa,

I am working now on porting the Design library to R.  I hope
to be finished in about 6-8 weeks.  My only holdup now, besides
finding some time, is figuring out how to configure directories
for optimal use with CVS, R, and S-Plus.   I have had a bit
of trouble with graphics because in some cases I rely on
text( ) etc. to plot outside the axis limits.  S-Plus allows
this but R seems to suppress such plotting attempts.

I am making steady progress on porting the Hmisc library to R.
Two people are working on specific functions that help in
this effort a great deal.
